Innovations and Ethical Concerns Essay


For the purpose of this assignment, pick a problem in your life that  might benefit from the implementation of artificial intelligence. Write a  paper describing the problem, your proposed solution, components that  might be needed for your solution, and potential ethical concerns. Use  the readings listed in the Module One Resources section as well as  additional, outside resources you find through your own research.  Include references and in-text citations using APA format.

Below are some examples of topics you may consider, but feel free to use problems you experience in your own life.

  1. In today’s fast-paced environment, many adults find it difficult to  find the time to cook their own meals. Others lack the necessary skills  in the kitchen. Describe a smart kitchen technology that would teach an  adult how to cook a whole meal from start to finish. For example, this  smart kitchen would need to recommend easy-to-follow recipes, help  coordinate cooking times for multiple dishes, and select recipes that  can be made with ingredients that the user already has, or ingredients  that can be ordered and delivered to the user’s home by the time they  get home from work. What AI techniques could be used in such a system?  What hardware and services would need to be in place for the system to  succeed? How would you combine these elements into a viable product? Can  you foresee any potential legal or ethical concerns that may arise?
  2. With the rising cost of housing, workers are moving farther and  farther away from their places of work and their commutes are getting  longer. Self-driving car technology is just around the corner, but what  effect will it have on traffic patterns? Self-driving cars will be able  to pick an optimal route to their destination, but what if there were a  central authority that steered them into routes that optimized the whole  system? What AI techniques would you use to design such a system? What  hardware would be needed to put it into place? Are there any ethical  concerns with implementing this technology?
  3. Personal assistants are permeating our lives. They help us organize  our time, improve our productivity, and are slowly seeping into our  personal lives. What AI techniques could you use to design a personal  assistant that would help shape your behavior? Could it run on existing  hardware? What aspects of your life would you be able to turn over to  it? Would you let it schedule your work tasks, workouts, and family  time? Why or why not?

Specifically, in your paper, you must address each of the following aspects of your chosen scenario:

  • Describe a real-world problem that would benefit from the application of AI.
  • Propose a solution to a real-world problem by describing applicable AI techniques.
  • Identify necessary system components, such as hardware or services, needed for your solution.
  • Identify potential ethical concerns with your solution.
